University or Apprenticeship? This is a question we all ask ourselves when transitioning from GCSE or A level, There are very good benefits from choosing either one. Over the years we have seen developments in both university and apprenticeship routes which were both good and bad. But when you weigh up the pros and cons of both of these routes you tend to see which one far outweighs the other,
For a very long time, it has been a thing where holding a university degree is a respectable thing and it is something that you can boast about. The university educational system is a very good and traditional way of gaining a degree and potentially going on to a very high paying job but in this day and age, it has become easier to attain these things.
Nowadays it has now become a trend to go to university for the social life but if this pandemic has shown us something that, a lot of university students struggled with keeping on top of their university work and found it difficult when it came to lessons. And the debt and money you still owed for finance and accommodation were the same. This really put a lot of students off seeing as it was not right in any way.
The benefits of doing an apprenticeship and are many and I am sure you are aware of them, benefits such as getting paid while learning, being more hands-on, having an introduction to the working world and many more., A thing people fail to realise is that you can do many different levels of apprenticeship going from level 2 to level 6, and compared to university where you are paying of a debt of a degree you may not like 3-4 years down the line, however with an apprenticeship you are able to change what you want to do and it’s never too late to choose a new apprenticeship or career route.
There are many benefits to doing both but if you see the statistics of people that get a job after university, it will really shock you.
